As part of our collaborative and guest-obsessed team, you help us create an experience that makes guests say “I love Target!” When you work at Target, you’re helping every family discover the joy in everyday life. You’re working alongside a dedicated team that brings their passion and pride to all that they do. You will deliver a destination shopping experience by providing a safe and secure environment for our guests and mitigate shortage risks in order to drive sales. 


Assets Protection (AP) teams function to keep our guests, team and brand safe and secure and lead through crisis events. They protect profitable sales by mitigating shortage risks, preventing, investigating and resolving theft and fraud to ensure product is available for our guest.  

At Target, we believe in our team members having meaningful experiences that help them build and develop skills for a career. The role of an Assets Protection Specialist can provide you with the: 

Skills using surveillance and intelligence-led tactics to keep team members and guests safe and secure while aiding in the reduction of shortage 

Ability to use Target's video surveillance system to monitor guests and identify potential theft risks 

Ability to implement Target's Assets Protection practices and routines to reduce and prevent shortage 

Ability to properly and effectively document cases 

Experience identifying strategic resolutions of external theft and fraud, and apprehension 

As an Assets Protection Specialist, no two days are ever the same, but a typical day will most likely include the following responsibilities: 

Know your role in supporting total store sales and increase profitability by ensuring product is in stock and available to our guests 

Resolve theft by using good judgement and conducting high-quality apprehensions in shortage focus areas while strictly adhering to policy and procedures and AP leadership guidance 

Identify theft trends by leveraging technology, reporting and surveillance tactics 

Drive a theft prevention culture by implementing action plans of AP leadership to reduce shortage by improving processes and merchandise protection standards 

Identify, escalate and support internal theft investigations at the direction of AP leadership 

Prevent theft by gathering intelligence and communicating important issues 

Understand and appropriately use video systems to monitor theft activity and support internal cases 

Respond to security incidents and submit appropriate documentation for all incidents following AP policy and procedures 

Lead a physical security and safety culture for our team members and guests by creating awareness and training safe and secure standards throughout the building 

Provide service and a shopping experience that meets the needs of the guest 

Model safe behaviors at all times while maintaining a clean store 

Demonstrate a culture of ethical conduct, safety, and compliance 

All other duties based on business needs 


We might be a great match if: 

Working in a fun and energetic environment makes you excited…. We work efficiently and as a team to deliver for our guests 

Providing service to our guests that makes them say I LOVE TARGET! excites you…. That’s why we love working at Target 

Stocking, Setting and Selling Target products sounds like your thing… That’s the core of what we do 

You aren’t looking for Monday thru Friday job where you are at a computer all day… We are busy all day (especially on the weekends), making it easy for the guest to feel welcomed, inspired and rewarded 

The good news is that we have some amazing training that will help teach you everything you need to know to be an Assets Protection Specialist. But, there are a few skills you should have from the get-go: 

High school diploma or equivalent 

Must be at least 18 years of age or older 

Meet any state or local licensure and/or other legal requirements related to the position 

Welcoming and helpful attitude toward guests and other team members 

Learn and adapt to current technology needs 

Effective communication skills  

Work both independently and with a team 

Manage workload and prioritize tasks independently 

We are an awesome place to work and care about our teams, so we want to make sure we are clear on a few more basics that we expect:  

Climb up and down ladders 

Apprehend subjects in accordance with company policy  

Scan, handle and move merchandise efficiently and safely, including frequently lifting or moving merchandise up to 40 pounds  

Flexible work schedule (e.g., nights, weekends and holidays) and regular attendance necessary
